I’m overcome with great sadness to announce that this will be the final Playlistings mixtape to release. Some of you may have noticed that past links have been removed by the RIAA because of copyright infringements. Although the VividUnderground and the DKALife attempt to bring you each day’s newest worry-free tracks that circumnavigate the globe within seconds each day in a legal manner, we can’t guarantee that each track doesn’t slip through the cracks and somehow inevitably prevents a multi-millionaire from making that down payment on a Bentley covered in gold (Bender is a little salty haha.  I blame the record labels more than the artists themselves, since its normally the artists that are proud to show their new work *G.O.O.D Friday’s for example…one of the reasons I love hiphop is because the artists are constantly putting out great material…record label or not.  In today’s world, you don’t really NEED a record label to be successful.  ie. Cudi’s “Day and Night”, Drake’s “Best I Ever Had”.  You just have to be good enough to get the attention of other artists and bloggers..and well, people)

I wouldn’t say there will NEVER be another Playlistings…but we’re definitely going to take a break.  So enjoy it.  Its been a pleasure.

(notice the shoeprint)

DOWNLOAD HERE

This year, as backpacks are being filled, it’s a good idea to fill your iPod while you’re at it. This  Playlistings release showcases a short (but potent) tracklist of hip-hop’s incoming freshman class. Although these names might be somewhat new, I can promise you they won’t be by the time you bomb that first exam. So to all those who are saddling up for a new year full of fresh pencils, pens, brand new kicks, and squeaky clean notebooks; you’ve got company. Check these new artists out.

Tracklist:

The Dean’s ListCollege Girls (feat. Jordan Brown)
Mac MillerKool Aid & Frozen Pizza
Kid InkAll I Know (feat. Sterling Simms)
DLRNReset (feat. Prometheus Brown & Illecism)
Diggy SimmonsGreat Expectations (feat. Bei Maejor)
Sean BrownChange (feat. Ty$)
XVWe Zonin’
LosTheme Song (feat. DC)

P.S. I feel bad for anyone who never had the chance to rock LA Gear’s back in the 90′s.  I hope they make a return soon.  Get those A’s kids.

DKA outttt.
